Fairtrade Hot Chocolate 2020

Miss Dean and the Fairtrade committee held a hot chocolate stall at break time. The children could buy a yummy hot chocolate for £1 with cream, marshmallows and sprinkles. The children who bought a hot chocolate enjoyed it in the lovely spring sun.

Fairtrade Fortnight 2019

We have been super busy doing activities to learn about Fairtrade for the past 2 weeks. Firstly,  we started Fairtrade fortnight by putting on a pancake breakfast for the parents of the school at the Community Centre. Parents and younger children came to enjoy some scrummy pancakes. The children then came  in their classes to enjoy the pancakes. We all really enjoyed helping to raise money for Fairtrade!

After that, throughout the 2 weeks the children have been learning in their own classes about Fairtrade.

FSU had a Fairtrade shop and they had to see if they could choose the Fairtrade products by finding the symbol. They also made a Fairtrade shopping list and they also read the 'The tiger who came for tea' story and learnt about fairness.

Year 1 learnt about why Fairtrade it is important to protect individuals and how we can tell if a product is Fairtrade. After that, they made their own chocolate bar wrappers.

Year 2 also made their own chocolate bar wrappers and for homework they had to see how many Fairtrade products they could find when they went shopping.

Year 3/4 played a string game- each child had a different role and they had to say someone they were linked to. They were then told that a drought occurred and they farmer couldn't grow his crops. The children explained that the string showed that everyone was affected by the drought.

Year 5/6 also made their own Fairtrade chocolate bar wrapper and they then filled out a worksheet about cocoa and how it grows.

Fairtrade Roadshow

The children, Miss Dean and Mrs Timmis have been to Hornsea Secondary School to visit a Fairtrade Roadshow. The children had a wonderful day making banana toff, bracelets out of paper and learnt about the process of cotton. They also made a wallet out of an orange carton. The children and both staff very much enjoyed themselves learning more about Fairtrade.

Below are some photos of our day:
